"Calico Lounge will cater for all tastes throughout the day", said David.

"Whether you’re looking for the best coffee in town, a business lunch with colleagues or a lazy all-day brunch, Calico Lounge promises to be the perfect place to relax and unwind.

"The all-day menu features everything from the famous authentic tapas and Hero Burger to Tin Pan Louie’s beef chilli, packed paninis and the best mac and cheese you’ve ever tasted. And then there's the ever-changing specials menu.

"And Little Loungers, vegans and those favouring a gluten-free diet are well catered for with their very own menus.
